of steve jobs bio diesel, and that is what he is doing so today. so in each of these stories, with all of them. they all make mistakes and they screw up in big ways and they go bankrupt and they make stupid investments. their marriages breakup and they have too many children without a father to support them. they get involved in dirty businesses, but they never let go of the idea that there is something more important than simply surviving and that america stands for something, the question is whether their investment in the american dream is reciprocated and is it still invested in people like them. so the book takes us through their stories and the stories of others while moving between power centers and backwaters and celebrities and obscure people as this time moves from the past, the late 70s until the moment that we are living in now, and that is what i tried to do in writing this book. thank you.

not just in the one case that they practice in. >> thank you. mr. dempsey. steve do you have any thoughts or comments on what we are talking about here? >> i will try to be brief. you are trying to break it down to speed and agility and the government ability to move quickly without adding more process but there's a lot of process already so we will add more under these proposals. another issue is intruding on the article of authority to an even more significant degree. everybody agreed i think when fisa was enacted that this was important. this is what the act is all about. it was justified for friday of reasons back then and it may be reasons to have it now. we have to be mindful that is what's happening and i'm worried about delegating to others whoever it may be the authority to disclose information, classified information to yet another party. i also worry about having an outside panel and the concept of an advocate versus an amicus on a case-by-case basis but the main thing i'm worried about frankly is just leaks of information. one of the things, it's hard to prosecute a lease case

success the city of rochester supported a thriving middle class for two generations. steve jobs equally equal fundamental innovation storm o. o. -- more fundamental innovations increased shareholders but there was no middle-class comprehensive job creation and that is what we are going to have to work through. it's going to require us to be much more imaginative and thinking about various kinds of service work and thinking about the quality of jobs and the dignity of jobs associated with this service sector. i am all for doing everything we can and there's a lot that we can do that is still undone, to bring about a renaissance of american manufacturing but china has gained competitiveness, gained share, innovated and raised its efficiency as much as any country ever will and there are fewer workers in chinese manufacturing today than there were 20 years ago. let me say that again. there are fewer workers in chinese manufacturing today than there were 20 years ago. so success if and when it comes is going to come from various kinds of service work, various kinds of greater customization.
